Did anyone hear about the fisherman who was found floating by the Mary Jane Thurston in Grand Rapids? I had heard about it on the radio and this is the article in the Toledo Blade today about it. Article published Wednesday, September 17, 2008 Man found in Maumee River identified GRAND RAPIDS, Ohio A Michigan man whose body was found Tuesday evening face down in the Maumee River near the Mary Jane Thurston Park dam had gone there to fish earlier in the afternoon, reports show. Eric Dennis Smith, 23, of Jasper, Mich. was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after he was pulled from the river. Wood County Sheriffs deputies were called to Mary Jane Thurston Park about 6:50 p.m. where two men who had been fishing in the river reported they had found an unresponsive person in the water. The men said theyd been fishing for about two hours and though they had seen a fishing tackle box, a fishing pole, a five-gallon bucket, and some bait by the shore when they arrived, they had not seen anyone nearby or fishing in the area. According to sheriffs reports, Mr. Smith had been staying with his grandfather, Darrell Ludeman, in Waterville for about a week. Mr. Ludeman told investigators his grandson had left to go fishing about 1 p.m. Tuesday and was expected home around 6:30 or 7 p.m. Sheriffs deputies said the case remained under investigation. The Lucas County Coroners Office was to perform an autopsy Wednesday.
